The Bulgarian Patriarch Maxim honoured the revered relics of Saint George, Darik News reported.

For the ceremony, the Patriarch, together with Archimandrite Naum, sang the antiphon of Saint George the Victor in the Lozenetz Hospital, where Maxim recovers from a serious injury.

The relics were brought from Rome late Saturday night by Ruse's Bishop Neophyte and Nikolay, Bishop of Znepol. Relics' arrival coincided with the sanctification of the St Konstantin and Elena church, the first temple in Bulgaria to see them.
